Remote desktop

Postby rhammer01 on Sat Jan 30, 2010 11:50 am

I have Remote Desktop running but I can't figure out how to connect through it to my other computers. I have Mint 8 running on all 3. I am sure it is something simple but I can't figure it out. I tried to find something on the forum but there were so many hits when I searched it was impossible. Thanks for your help!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Are you running remote desktop on the other computers also? You need to enabled others to see your desktop on each machine before you can connect from another one.
